Megda;

Oxford University Press, New York. 1988, xxxvii, 394p., text and frontis portrait in facsimile, hardbound item in dark blue 6.7x4.8 inch cloth boards gilt; back cover is a little scraped, spine bears a haze resembling lost sizing (but is not), else clean and entirely sound, good copy. Melanin as metaphor, but not "race;" per the prefatory material, "there are tantalizing indications that no one in the world of Megda is Caucasian. Henry Gates has noted that the town of Cottage City where [the protagonists] spend their vacation is modeled on a summer resort of the Massachusetts black bourgeoisie." The Schomburg Library of Nineteenth-century Black Women Writers.
